Question on Volvo MD6A problems

I have an md6a on a boat I recently purchased. The engine would not rotate. We removed the engine from the boat (hoo boy was that fun ) and began a tear down in the garage. Thec cylinders were full of diesel fuel, the oil was a nice blend of diesel/oil as well. Oh..and the pistons are still stuck..oil pan is off, motor is laying on its side we're spraying marvel, pub, trying to get them loose..

The PO had mounted an electronic fuel pump on the fuel line coming to the motor..could this cause the flooding?

What could cause it ?

Any ideas on where to start focusing?

PO also apparently didn't add oil to the tranny as that was dry as well
Doesn't appear to be damaged, spins & shifts OK etc etc..anything I should looking for in there?
